Phil Mickelson withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open following his second round due to lingering back issues.

Specifically, the PGA TOUR's Media page on Twitter cited "muscle pain in his lower back." As we relayed earlier, Mickelson didn't eliminate the possibility during his post-round interview on Golf Channel. As the defending champion at next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open, he surely doesn't want to have to withdraw from that commitment, so he may have come to terms with his spot on the leaderboard at Torrey Pines. He reached the midpoint in 2-under 142 and sat T32, eight strokes back of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth. Taking an even broader perspective of his decision, his season if not his career is gearing toward a run at the Grand Slam at Pinehurst for the U.S. Open in June, so risk of any kind right now isn't worth it in that context.

GolfChannel.com reported today that Jarrod Lyle is planning to return to competition at the Web.com Tour's Price Cutter Charity Championship on Aug. 7-10, not the Midwest Classic two weeks prior.

Whatever actually happens, it's great news that he's full steam ahead on his competitive comeback.

Bubba Watson put an exclamation point on his second Masters victory in three years with a final-round 3-under-par 33-36=69.

While he trailed early in the round to Jordan Spieth, Watson never panicked or flinched under the pressure of playing catch-up. The biggest swing of the round came on the par-5 eighth and par-4 ninth holes. Watson trailed Spieth by two on the tee at8, but the lefty went birdie-birdie while Spieth swallowed a pair of bogeys to flip the lead to two strokes in Watson's favor. When it was all added up, the University of Georgia product's five birdies outpaced a pair of bogeys spread across Augusta National Golf Club. He ends the week at 8-under 280, three strokes clear of Spieth and Jonas Blixt in second place.

Bubba Watson could only muster a 2-over-par 38-36=74 in the third round of the Masters and now shares the lead with Jordan Spieth at 5-under 211 with 18 holes to play.

Watson rarely looked comfortable in his third lap around Augusta National Golf Club, squaring three bogeys in his first six holes, but hiding behind a crafty eagle at the par-5 second. His only birdie of the day came at the par-4 10th, and it briefly put him back in the lead by himself. It wouldn't be for long, as he bogeyed the par-3 16th with an tee shot that was a bit too aggressive to drop into a share of the lead. The lefty entered the day with the longest stretch of holes without a three putt on the PGA TOUR, but suffered a three-putt bogey on the par-3 sixth and a three-putt par on the par-5 13th. While he no longer enjoys a three-stroke lead as he did this time yesterday, he still owns a spot in the final tee time. He will try and earn his second Masters title in three years on Sunday.
Apr 12 - 6:57 PM

Jordan Spieth took the lead in his first Masters with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round, improving to 5-under 211 through 54 holes.

Spieth was solid throughout the day, never finding himself over par at any point in his round. He circled two birdies to just one bogey on the front nine at Augusta National Golf Club, then posted the same splits on the back nine. The final round will be a massive measuring stick for how he handles playing in the final pairing of a major championship. On top of that, he also has the chance to become the youngest winner in the history of the Masters. Tiger Woods currently holds that mark but Spieth is seven months younger than Woods was when he slipped on his first green jacket. Pressure will be high.

Dustin Johnson followed his opening 77 at the 78th Masters with a 2-over-par 35-39=74, but missed the cut by three strokes.

DJ found only one birdie at Augusta National today, that a 3 at the seventh hole. He then ran off three bogeys in a four-hole stretch beginning at Amen Corner. The cut of low 50 and ties took precedent over the 10-stroke rule as six golfers at 4-over 148 survived despite sitting 11 shots in arrears of Bubba Watson's pace. However, a series of heavy hitters failed to advance. They include: 149--Phil Mickelson; Charl Schwartzel; Ernie Els; Webb Simpson; Sergio Garcia; Luke Donald; Ryan Moore; Marc Leishman; Victor Dubuisson ... 150--Zach Johnson; Graeme McDowell; Harris English ... 151--Hideki Matsuyama ... 152--Ángel Cabrera; Patrick Reed; Graham DeLaet; Matteo Manassero ... 153--Trevor Immelman; Keegan Bradley ... 154--Jason Dufner; Y.E. Yang ... 155--Matt Every ... 159--Tom Watson.
